Minimally Invasive Retractor
Innovative Product Design & Prototyping
A pioneering thoracic surgeon was developing a minimally invasive open-heart surgery procedure which would drastically reduce postoperative pain and recuperation time by reducing the incision from a full sternal opening to 3 to 4 inches.
Product Design Development & In-House Prototyping
- To develop this new surgical tool, JAKTOOL partnered with the surgeon on several device concepts to aid in defining the surgical technique.
- JAKTOOL designed and engineered a novel surgical device that took materials, structural requirements, sterility, and operative procedures into consideration
- JAKTOOL designed and developed a new prototype and ultimate delivery of a new medical device that’s currently being used in clinical settings with resounding success
RESULT: JAKTOOL empowered a leading surgeon with the tools and techniques needed to improve patients’ lives by reducing operative complications and recovery times.
